Jack Johnson of social media duo Jack & Jack spoke out about mental health Sunday in light of the senseless shooting in Cleveland, Ohio, of an elderly man.
“Jesus… please stay safe if you are in Cleveland… can’t believe what I just watched,” he tweeted after the incident had been broadcast over Facebook Live.
Then, he followed it up with a plea to his followers.
“If something feels off and u think u may have an issue, please speak up to someone you can trust. Mental health is no joke guys… seriously.”
Many of his fans commented below that they didn’t have that someone, and other fans replied to those comments, providing mental health resources and encouragement. The comment section quickly turned into a beautiful and touching support system between strangers with one person in common.
It’s so important that Jack is using his massive platform to raise awareness about mental health issues. The more we normalize mental health issues as a society, the better we can treat them and prevent horrifying incidents like this in the future.
With prominent actors like Bella Thorne speaking out about depression and shows like 13 Reasons Why addressing suicide, we are (hopefully) taking steps in the right direction.
If you or someone you know is in need, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or Buddy Project, which partners you with a “buddy” to aid in mental health,
We all like to poke fun at old throwback photos of ourselves… and Jack Johnson is no exception!
The social media star — and half of entertainment duo Jack & Jack — posted an unreal funny throwback picture to Twitter late Tuesday (April 5) that is reminiscent of how far we all have come.
“I was 4’10″ start of freshman year,” Jack captioned the series of pictures. “This was Homecoming. Thanks Chelsea, for wearing flats,” he joked.
He also added, cocky as ever: “(Peep her; back right… yuppp, I still pulled).”
Tons of his followers commented back, LOL-ing at the shot and sharing their own late-blooming stories.
When one follower shared that puberty hit him late as well, Jack responded: “Us late bloomers gotta stick together Kian… world can be a harsh place for guys like us.”
Hey, the idea that guys have to be tall is a gender construct anyway, and as we all know, Jack has no issue with deconstructing gender norms.
Thanks for the laughs, Jack!

“2017 been treatin me right,” Jack captioned one pic.
On another, he wrote, “mad walked by.”
He’s of course referring to his longtime girlfriend, Madison Beer, who’s on the trip with him.
Right before the New Year, Jack was spotted sweeping Madison off her feet and going into the ocean with her. Too cute!
If you didn’t have anyone to smooch on New Year’s Eve, you weren’t alone.
Surprisingly, some of the hottest young guys in Hollywood also had trouble finding a perfect midnight kiss.
Cameron Dallas, for example, tried to lean in for a peck, but got rejected and offered a friendly hug instead. Yikes!

Jack Johnson just tackled gender norms in a powerful Instagram.
The Jack & Jack singer took to the social media network to show off his new boots and shared the story.
“I was lookin at these boots yesterday in a shop and the attendant was like ‘you know those are women’s boots right?’ and immediately I was like ‘oh shit’ and started to set them back down,” Jack explained, adding, “Then something clicked in my head. Why was that my reaction?”
“It kinda made me upset once I realized I was only setting them back because they were ‘women’s boots’ when that didn’t make them any less fly! Kinda whack how our brains are conditioned to think like that growing up.”
Jack finished, “Basically all I’m tryna say is, wear whatever you think is fresh, don’t let labels dictate your decisions!”
